The bodhi lodge is definitely a yes for budget traveller, I stayed in a mixed dorm for just one night. However, I am impressed by the cleanliness of the lodge and the friendly owner, GG. It is a home away from home. Everything is just very nice. Besides, the location is very strategic, less than 5 minutes to Bangsar LRT... More

I stayed to that guest house just for one night between my trips and needed late check in. A very nice place inside, friendly and attentive lady-receptionist has made my staying there nice and comfortable.

Bodhi has a great location just a 2-3 minute walk from the subway station. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They provide great information and suggestions for what to do. The common area feels so homely with it's armchairs and sofas. There's a big widescreen tv. There is aircon and fans in the common area. There are 2 computers for... More

Actually there is nothing else to say than home away from home. I had a really nice stay at this place and the host Gege made it even better. She knows all the places at KL and is always happy to help you out. If you dont know where to go or what to eat just approach her and she... More

Stayed here 4 nights. The place is ideal for rest and recuperation or visiting all sights in KL. Although I was unwell during my first 2 days the place was ideal to recover with the single rooms available for my needs. Clean, relaxing and comfortable accomodation with very helpful owner xox

We only stayed here for one night, arriving late and leaving early, but it did the job for a cheap stopover. Describing this as a Buddhist retreat is probably a bit elaborate, but it does have clean basic rooms at a budget price. We had the family room next to the bathroom near reception, and although the room itself smelt... More
